Rocky Coast

The Rocky Coast is a sea fishing venue on the western coast of Anglesey. If you follow the coastal path from Holyhead Breakwater toward North Stack you are in the right area. The path above hugs the shoreline and from here you can assess the different marks available.

As it’s name suggests the fishing is onto very rough ground so correct tackle should be used. A sturdy beachcaster with rotten bottom rigs will help reduce tackle losses to snags. This section of the Rocky coast also has some large kelp sections to contend with.

What this gives anglers is some great but at times difficult fishing however there are good size fish about. This habitat is great for LRF as well as Congor, Pollock and some big Bull Huss are about too. If you fish the ground to its features there are some great catches to be had. 2 areas of this section also have deep water quite close in if you can cast far enough.

Large fish and / or squid bait should help you pick up Conger and Bull Huss. The Conger can be caught closer in than the Huss too. If using LRF gear, fish can be picked up almost under foot but its better late April to mid September. Float fishing just above the kelp works well with Mackerel strips for Pollock. Drop shot tactics or a few Sabakis tipped with worm for Wrasse.

Park at the start of the Holyhead Breakwater for free and walk. Alternatively you can park at cost at the country Park which is closer to some fishing marks – LL65 1YG
